    Hi,

    Chronometer specs are -4 to +6 seconds per day. it has an ETA manufactured movement inside so if you are not happy with it find a good watchmaker to regulate or service it

    Your watch is not running slow, as noted by John, it is running within specs. If it is new, you need to wear it for as many as two or more months before the movement settles in--if it is used, and it is still within COSC tolerances, you are doing great. You do not need to, nor should you, do anything with it in terms of regulation, especially if it is new. A few years ago Balldy did a 6 month (or thereabouts) graph on day to day fluctuations of a new automatic watch--and during the first few months, there was significant variation, but after awhile, it settled in--perhaps you can find his thread in the archives, but if not, the breaking in period of an automatic has been attested to elsewhere as well. This is a basic case of 'if it isn't broken, it doesn't need fixing'--you're actually doing very well.
